I wouldn't want to ride anywhere else!! I asboutely loved this experience and it was definitely the highlight of my trip. If you are staying in Buenos Aires, I would 100% recomend taking the trip to Colonia to do David's horse riding tour. This well thought out tour exceeded my expectations. The horse riding on the beach was incredible and great to see a less touristy side to Colonia. We had people with all different horse riding experience from absolute beginner to professional. All of us felt well taken care of and got what we wanted from the tour. We ended with the BBQ which was the cherry on top and caters for all dietary requirements - you won't leave hungry! The red wine and food was delicious and if you are lucky enough you will get to listen to David's extraordinary stories! A beautiful day, Thank you David!

Such and amazing day in Colonia riding with David on a gorgeous deserted beach. Felt "taken care of" from the moment we booked with David. Ferry tickets purchased, met us at the ferry landing with transportation to our horses and was so attentive while booking that I thought he must never sleep! He is a VERY accomplished rider who gives perfect instruction on riding and loves to share the history of Colonia and Uruguay The horses were matched to our ability and comfort level perfectly. These beautiful, gentle, spirited Criollo horses were a joy to be on, especially when galloping across the deserted beach After our ride, we spent a few hours drinking the local, delicious wine and eating fresh meats and vegetables (Plenty to enjoy if a vegetarian, the veggies are gorgeous) Later it was off to explore Colonia with our exceptional guide, sorry that I have forgotten her name. So much history amongst well preserved buildings, cute boutiques and lovely restaurants My husband and I plan on returning to ride with David but to also explore Colonia It really is the perfect day get away while in Buenos Aires Enjoy!

What a wonderful day!!! I was staying in Colonia for a few days when they picked me up to go on this once in a life time experience, ridding a horse along the Rio de la Plata. I was so excited and a bit nervous as I hadn´t ridden a horse for over 20 years. Got into the van with people from different parts of the world an drove to the farm. On the way we were given some information about the city and even stopped to take some pictures. Finally we headed to the farm, our final stop. While going to the farm, David told us all we need to know abou our ride. The ride itself was excellent, the guides were very experienced and as we had all level riders they watched more closely the new ones. We were able to gallop along the beach with David who was always encouraging the new riders. The horses were well trained and taken care of. I had a really good time. After ridding we went back to Colonia to eat the original Uruguayan barbecue. The tour of the historical part of the city was a nice end to the day. Thanks for the great experience and you guys shouldn´t miss this opportunity.

You are a very talented rider already at only 9 years old and I am happy you had the chance to experience your first gallop with our lovely horses and beautiful beach. We are very experienced instructors and as you saw we have well trained horses for all levels of riders. I hope to meet you again soon with a nice group of your horsey friends; take care and keep up the good riding. Best regards, David

We had a great day with David riding horses on an excursion down to the beach and around the beautiful ranch. David was an excellent guide and gave great instructions on riding and feeling comfortable with the horses. Everything with thoughtful, fun, and enjoyable for all. The beach was definitely a highlight - we had it all to ourselves! After the ride we went into town for a delicious meal and a walk around Colonia. We wish we had more time to explore Colonia as it's architecture, shops, and history were very interesting and just overall lovely. Would recommend to all looking for a great adventure!
